Can't install Sync on Linux using Yum Repo - Gets 404


Recommended Posts



Is the RPM repository broken? It returns 404...


I'm following the usual Linux install procedure for RPM-Based distro:


I cannot install on CentOS after creating the  /etc/yum.repos.d/resilio-sync.repo file (and adding the public key).

Here is the command I used to create the resilio-sync.repo file, in a format easier to read:

(Edit: My error is $basearch is not escaped like this \$basearch)


tee /etc/yum.repos.d/resilio-sync.repo <<EOF
name=Resilio Sync


Yum gets a 404 error.

It did work unescaped though, in many other CentOS instance setup.

My (embarrassing) error.

Make sure to use the exact escaped code from the tutorial when creating the repo file:

printf "[resilio-sync]\nname=Resilio Sync\nbaseurl=\$basearch\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=1\n" | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/resilio-sync.repo
